    Hi and :hi to tMP. :)

    I would like to drive a bus, one of those cute little ones that nip round town. Will do if I ever find myself out of my current job, so I may come back to you later. ;)

    Our second Euph drives coaches and tour busses, think he said he was touring with Motorhead recently?

    There's certainly a couple of bus/coach drivers in Aldbourne band, but I don't know if they're on tMP.

    Well - I'm a train driver which I suppose these days is more or less a bus on rails....
    Just got back to playing regularly after family illness forced me to take a 2 year break.

    Rob Beasy, recently retired from the Melbourne Staff Band, I believe owns a bus comoany and has often driven the bus for bands visiting Australia. Rob was principal cornet in the MSB for many years.

    I'm not a coach/bus driver, but this thread reminded me of the band I played in as a wee sprat. There were no less than 7 PSV licence holders in the band, with a few more in the supporters club!

    The band was supported by one of the big companies in the village which just happened to be a coach firm! The company was run by the band chairman, who also made sure his drivers who were also bandsmen were never timetabled to work on a band job!
